OS X :: Measuring Bandwidth Usage By Application

Sep 30, 2010

Does anyone know of any application that will allow me to see details on how my bandwidth is being used? For example, I'd like to be able to track how much data I use when streaming Netflix (via a wired connection to my AirPort Extreme), browsing the web (wirelessly), or making a Skype call.

Applications :: IStat Menus - Does Not Display Network/bandwidth Data?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm running the latest iStat Menus (2.0) on Snow Leopard 10.6.2. All the displayed data shows just fine with the exception of the Network (bandwidth) menu. The graph does not reflect bandwidth being used and the "KB/s" displays a constant "0.0KB/s." I've tried rebooting and I've also tried manually selecting "Airport" in the General Settings in iStat Menus' Preference Pane.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

(iStat Pro, the widget version of this program, displays the bandwidth data though.)

MacBook Air :: Multi Tasking - Enough In / Out Bandwidth

Oct 26, 2010

I really need to upgrade my old 15" MBP and have been really impressed with what I have seen so far with the 13" MBA. After seeing the MBA I cannot imagine buying a new system with an internal HDD and Optical drive. Just does not make sense. On the other hand, I am a pretty serious at multi-tasking and wonder if the MBA will be able to keep up. I've been using higher end MPB class Macs for around 10 years now, and may be taking certain things for granted. First, here is my current system: 15" MBP Early 2008 2.5 GHz C2D 6 MB L2 8600M GT, 320 GB 7200 RPM

Now, here are the list of apps I almost always have open at work:
- Mail with one browser, 3-4 notes windows open and 4-5 messages open
- Adium
- MS/Entourage
- MS/PowerPoint with 5-10 slide sets open
- MS/Excel with 5-10 spreadsheets open
- MS/Word with a couple of docs
- Preview with 3-5 docs
- Camino with 3-5 windows open (Flash blocked)
- Firefox with 3-4 windows open (Flash blocked)
- Address Book

I quit usingFusion, so good so far? Then I go home where I start doing video editing with my 1080 HD AVCHD footage. I don't close any of my work stuff, because I often have late night and early morning calls. At home add the following apps.
- iMovie for video editing
- Toast for burning Blu-ray discs
- Voltaic (AVCHD video encoding)

While pulling in AVCHD footage via an SD card reader in my ExpressCard slot and writing to a Firewire 800 disk I am burning a Blu-ray movie from Toast via my FW400 port. At the same time I might be using Carbon Copy Cloner to update my system to a different 2.5" external Firewire 800 drive. Time Machine comes around once an hour and wants to backup to my Airport Extreme over ethernet.Will I be able to do all of this with a MBA? I am especially interested in knowing if I will have enough I/O bandwidth. I'll be going from a machine with FW800, FW400, 2 USB2 ports, and ethernet to a machine that just has 2 USB2 ports. I did do a little test with USB and it takes 2.5x the time to copy a file compared to FW800. I also verified that iMovie will let me scrub HD video in with data connected via USB2. The only problem was that I did all of this on a MBP. The biggest let down for me from the Air announcements was the absence of a FW800 port.

MacBook Pro :: Takes Up All The Internet Bandwidth When Connected

When the MBP is not turned on, I have an 15Mbs connection. When turned on (doesn't have to have any internet activity), it goes down to below 1Mbs for other computers. What causes this?

MacBook Pro :: Take Superdrive Out To Reduce Weight?

Apr 15, 2010

I went to Apple store yesterday. I want a new MBA badly. Only problem is the memory of current model is 2G only not expandable. The guy in the shop has no idea when new MBA will be released.

I was looking at new 13" or 15" Macbook Pro, I like it, and wonder since I don't use DVD that much, is it possible to take the drive out and reduce weight a lot?

MacBook Pro :: Reduce The Wired Memory?

Feb 17, 2012

I have an Mid-2009 13 Inch Macbook pro. I decided to upgrade my memory to 4 gigs using thirdparty memory. However, I have noticed that the amount of Wired memory usage has gone up a quite bit. My Wired memory usuage usually goes as much as 900 mbs and this is outrageous because I don't particularly open any major applications. My Kernel Task right now sits at 397 MBs, which is huge as well.

I find that with one firefox or chrome browser open, I can easily use over 90% of my 4 gig ram and that's when watching you tube becomes very difficult 9freezes a lot.I understand that I never had this problem with Windows, or even when I run bootcamp. 

Here is a print out of my processes: 

Active Memory: 1.91 GB
Free Memory: 1.02 GB
Wired Memory: 853.4 MB
Used Memory: 2.98 GB

MacBook Pro :: Reduce The Size Of Scanned Documents?

May 27, 2012

I scanned some documents with my printer/scanner and don't want to have to rescan every time. I made them too big, they are 20+ megs, and I know with JPEGs one can just "flatten" the file. Can that be done with scanned docs too? If so, how? Do I need a special app for that? I have Preview and iPhoto, plus the MS Office package for the Mac.

MacBook :: CPU Runs At High Temp - Wants To Reduce The Heat?

Mar 10, 2009

I'm using iStat and it says that my CPU runs at temps around high 70s, low 80 degrees Celsius for about 10-15 minutes at a time (also says the same for Airport card). It usually takes a while for it to cool down. I always place my laptop on flat surfaces. It does this even during light internet surfing minus flash or any other WITH multimedia use, it reaches the 80s no problem and I just quit the process cuz I don't want my laptop to explode one day.

I just wanted to know if this was average and what temps everyone else is usually running at?

I'm afraid that if it runs at these high of temps for a long time each time like that, then it may do some damage somewhere...

MacBook Pro :: Reduce Brightness On External Monitor With Software?

May 18, 2009

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question. (I feel like I know a decent amount about my MBP and about a/v matters, so, I feel a bit dumb for not knowing the answer to this.)

I have an external monitor (Samsung 2223w) monitor connected to my MBP via DVI. The MBP is shut.

Is there a way that I can reduce the brightness of the external monitor quickly with software? Of course, I can manually reduce brightness by clicking the buttons on the side of the monitor and navigating through the menus. But is there a way that I can set a keystroke to do the same?

MacBook Pro :: Does Going From 5400rpm To 7200rpm Reduce Battery Life

Jan 5, 2010

I'm using an early 2008 MBP (4,1) running the original 5400rpm 200gb HDD but upgrading to 500gb this week.

I'm looking at WD Scorpio 5400rpm but wondering if 7200rpm reduces the battery life relevantly.

Also, I'm running 2gb of memory but I'm debating if 4gb would be dramatically faster.

Or do you think I would be better off buying a new mbp?

MacBook Pro :: Samsung 840 EVO SSD - Reduce Total Bytes Written (TBW)

Jun 29, 2014

I just replaced my damage HD (original HD) to my MBP 2009 unibody. So far, I like the SSD drive, and I use it for my internal storage. I've been read a fews article online, but it seems I don't find the answer. My concern is, How do I reduce TBW on SSD? if I play video (like youtube, Netflix, or Hulu) or play online games, would it be increase my TBW? So far, I set up my download file to my external HD. Whenever I download file, application, or etc, it would go to my external HD. Second question, What can I do to lower the use of SSD? Therefore, my SSD will last long like 3-5  years perhaps. Third question, since Samsung Magician Software can't run on MBP. How do I check my TBW and the health of my SSD?

OS X :: Checking My Bandwidth OS X?

Sep 6, 2010

This doesn't have to do with OS X as much as it does my ISP (Comcast 15Mbps/3Mbps Down/Up). Comcast states you get speeds "Up to" those advertised which basically means you will never get those speeds but once in a blue moon it could happen.

I've been watching my Router activity for a few minutes (see Top graph of the attached image) and I never get near either of those advertised speeds as expected. I am downloading Xcode DMG from Apple and a few torrents are running with no bandwidth restrictions.

My question is currently I'm getting about 50% of my advertised bandwidth, if I reduced down to the 1.5 Mbps Comcast package would I probably still only get 50% of that bandwidth? I think I already know the answer but was curious what you guys thought.

I am trying to limit the upload bandwidth of a program. Are there any apps out there that will allow me to do this?

I have read there is something built into OSX that can do this at the command line level (ipfw or something?)
